Regular Car Reviews examines a 1967 Plymouth Belvedere

Jeff Glucker January 22, 2018 Friends of Hooniverse, Hoonivercinema 8 Comments

It’s a car for the mythic dad. That’s how Regular Car Reviews describes the 1967 Plymouth Belvedere. This white and black example looks to be a great driver’s car, and a wonderful example of a surviving B-body.

As always, RCR has a unique take on this given vehicle. It’s best to set aside some time to take it all in.

Also, I still want some Mopar in my life at some point…

    A mythic dad wouldn’t drive on that bent wheel.

      Couldn’t tell if it was a bent wheel or a some kind of hub/bearing induced wobble. Looks painful either way.

        Haha, good to see that the two other regulars here had the exact same thought. Can’t believe RCR didn’t mention it. It’s the owner’s Acura that needed new wheel hubs, right?

      It was driving me nuts as well. Cheap easy fix, but in winter not so much since I heard him say it was – 6.

    Reminds me of the white $300 1971 AMC Matador that I bought for a college winter beater. Likewise, it was ugly but had satisfying V8 power (and a great heater!).

    The blackout bumpers, grille & taillight panel are a bit unfortunate, a car of that era needs some chrome. I wonder if a black-bumper Mennonite got ahold of the car at some point in its past?
    I believe the 110 MPH top speed. The one time I tried, my similarly power- and aero-challenged 1973 Mercury Cougar XR-7 with 170 net HP’s worth of 351C-2V stopped accelerating at 112 MPH about 1.5 miles after I’d floored it.
    Some #FakeNews in the engine listing. 383 and 426 were B-series engines, not LA’s; per the usually well-informed Allpar the LA 360 didn’t start till 1971.

      Probably more recent with the cost of chrome rising so much.

      Fwiw my old Mitsubishi was smaller and less draggy and did that speed with about 100hp. And I think a blown head gasket at the time – it was a long time ago now!

    Getting real quiet around here , has there been a death in the family ?
